Transparent rucksacks, day-glo cameras, and skin whitening cream
This image was sent in by one of our regular readers (There are four.) I tried to wait a decent interval before posting, so as not to offend anyone, but there's no telling with some people.
Months ago I advocated the use of day-glo cameras (May 3rd, The Journalist's War: US forces shoot another cameraman), so that US soldiers would quit accidentally shooting cameramen and journalists in Iraq. The transparent rucksack falls into the same category of proactive defense wear. Some of that skin whitening cream that's all the rage here in Taiwan might do the trick too.
I'm sure the real answer lies in giving the various security forces a little sensitivity training, but that might interfere with all the insensitivity training that they have already received.
